KISS AND TELL
The latest disaster for the government is the kiss-and-tell
story in yesterday's Sunday World newspaper, in which a
well-known actress told of her two-year affair with the
Minister for the Family. As the man who calls the shots in the
government's policy on family values, the Minister's days are
numbered
, and the government's credibility has
been severely damaged.
